Thread: Genetic testing for family hx

  1. #1

    Default Genetic testing for family hx

    AAPC: Back to School
    Any idea if V26.33 would be appropriate for a patient that comes for genetic counseling/testing and they have a family history of breat cancer? I notice it falls under "procreative management" but the patient isnt there for procreative management. I dont see anything else that fits other than maybe V65.4 codes. The family history code is not a primary code.

    We bill with V16.3 and V26.33 for our genetic education that is done in our office. We haven't had any problems with reimbursement.
